    Severe Weather Returns to the Plains This Weekend

    June 14, 2013; 9:37 AM ET

    Note: I will be on vacation until June 24.

    Commentary

    After two days of significant wind damage, the weather will turn calmer but still active through the weekend. The recent severe weather event produced over 800 reports of wind damage from the Midwest to the mid-Atlantic and Southeast. Tornado reports remain low and we continue to remain on the low side of the number of tornadoes this year.

    Today through this weekend, the severe storms will remain the Plains and will be scattered in nature. Some areas will see locally damaging winds, large hail, flash-flooding rain and even a tornado. For that area, it's nothing out of the ordinary in regards to the type of storms.

    Tropics may get active again the next two weeks, and it's possible we have a storm in the southern Gulf of Mexico again. It looks like Mexico would be the area to watch for any landfalling storm if one would occur.
